That begs the question: what makes a Saab a Saab? Is the location of the factory that important? In February, I bought my first car: a 2004 9-3. Because I'm new to Saabs (and vintage are older than I am), I can't appreciate the "new Saabs aren't really Saabs" complaints. What did I miss out on by buying my 9-3?
